Cape Wine 2015

In an unexpected twist… the Krone Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2015 is the first wine in the Southern Hemisphere to be bottled under the innovate HELIX cork from Amorim, world leaders in wine packaging concepts.

The Krone Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2015 with its regal blue foil-wrapped HELIX closure – another nod to the spirit of MCC – was officially introduced to the South African wine industry on 16 September at the inaugural Cape Wine 2015, held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The new ‘twist to open’ concept combines an ergonomically-designed stopper made from cork and a glass bottle with an internal thread finish in the neck, creating a high performing and sophisticated wine packaging solution.

Joaquim Sa, MD of Amorim South Africa said: “HELIX meets consumers’ growing desire for sustainability and quality, while delivering the brand building and premium image packaging wineries rely upon. We are offering the market not only a 100% renewable, modern product, but also a solution that enhances the wine drinking experience through opening and resealing convenience.”

The new HELIX cork means that even our still wine opens with a festive pop. Read more about the Krone Chardonnay Pinot Noir here
